Elec Man first appeared in Mega Man in 1987. He was originally built by Dr. Light to work in nuclear power plants and regulate their voltage. However, Dr. Wily reprogrammed him for his own evil and selfish ways. Elec Man bears the colors red, yellow, and black. He has wristbands on each arm, and a lightning bolt on his chest. He wears a mask with another lightning bolt. He is also the quickest of the original six robots Dr. Light built, as well as the most powerful. He is capable of defeating Mega Man in less than three hits due to the high power of his Thunder Beam.
Elec Man is an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U during the April Super Smash Bros. Direct. He shoots his signature Thunder Beam in three directions. He also walks and jumps similarly to his battle in the first Mega Man game.
A robot created to help manage the power at nuclear plants. He specializes in directing power flow, handling levels of energy that would short out lesser robots. When he is called into battle, he'll zip around while firing his Thunder Beam in all directions. Don't get zapped!
